I have 3 right now.

1. Penfold's Bin 389 - Cab/Shiraz mix. one of my favorite QPR wines ever. you can usually get this for @$20.00

2. Luigi Bosca - Reserve Malbec - Argentina - Got for $14.39 at Costco and is, to me, an 89-91 point wine.

3. My new favorite, as of last night, is this Gotham Langhorne Creek Shiraz. It is rumored to be a 96 point wine, is the darkest, inkiest purple that I have ever seen, and was bought for just $17.99. I am going back today to buy a case.

Wine o girls - it was actually 2004, just delivered to the store. I decanted for about 1 1/2 hours, but it could have used a little more. It is a very big wine, but very juicy and one of the best values I have had in a while. fun to find that in something that I have never heard of before.
A few good ones in this range (my range at the moment) that I've tried in the past weeks:

Barone Ricasoli Rocca Guiccarda 2002
Barone Ricasoli Brolio 2003

Both of these are fine at a very low price, around $15 here, perhaps not quite as praised as previous vintages, but still good catches. The Brolio has become my standard wine, absolutely incredible for the price.

Allesverloren Tinta Barocca 1999(?) - Lots of wine for a decent price.

And because it's summertime:
Stoneleigh Sauvingon Blanc
Winkl Sauvignon Blanc (Italian, don't see many of those). Very clean, crisp acidity.
Some more for the list:

My current favs under $20 (based on Philippine pesos)

Ruffino Orvieto '04 -clean crisp and refreshing, goes with a lot of seafood and asian dishes, or just on its own

Nobilo Pinot Noir '01 -fantastic New Zealand Pinot that I always enjoy with cold cuts pre-dinner!

Trapiche Pinot Noir '04 -easy drinking Pinot from Argentina chock full of berry flavors

These go for what would be under $20 (in the Philippines) I think they may be even cheaper in the US? Smile

Cheers!

One of my favorites as far as daily drinkers go and just good all around. Usually get this for $7-9. I am drinking a 2004 Antinori Santa Cristina, also in that price range.

If you can find them: Tintara 2002 Cabernet and 2004 or 2005 Ferrari and Carano Fume Blanc. One of the best that I like is Casa Lapastolle cabernet from Chile. Also great for a great price is Alto Las Hormigas bonarda.

Just slightly out of this range I like the Buehler cabernets (about $23) and if you can find them, their zinfandels.

Malbec
Merlot Reserve
Cabernet Reserve

If you like fruity reds I would try the 2004 or 2005 Water Wheel Memzie. 90 or 91 points by RP and you should be able to find it for $12-14. Plenty of fruit with this one.

If you like a slightly more structured red but still heavy on the fruit, try the Pillar Box Red. You usually can find it for around $10 and also another 90 or 91 by RP.

Both of these wines are Australian Shiraz based blends and are good for everyday drinking and bringing to a friends for a BBQ.
There are (at least) two threads about this on the "Wine Conversation" forum as well. I believe one is called "Daily Drinkers" and one is called "Best wine under $25" or something like that. I remember there being some great suggestions in those, so might want to do a search...

But, I'll copy here what I posted there. My favorite sub-$20 wines are:


2004 Juan Gil Jumilla ($14) - I drink this quite often. Great QPR!

Dr. "L" Riesling ($10), the 2005 or the new 2006, both quite nice and refreshing, though distinctly different. This is my wife's favorite daily drinker.

2003 Poggio d'Arna Toscana Rosso ($12, $9/case) - I keep this stocked at the house. Fantastic stuff!! Needs a good hour or 2 in the decanter to get going, but this is as good as some Tuscans I pay $20-30 for, EASY!

I have tried this one, and I enjoyed it. I also second the Pillar Box comment from above, but it does need some time to breathe before consumption.

Does anyone have any Italian table wine style reds they've enjoyed, offhand?
